About

This eagerly anticipated recording represents a major triumph for harmonia mundi.

From Gramophone Recording of the Year to the Grammy® Awards, René Jacobs’ world-renowned Mozart opera recordings have been celebrated by the most prestigious award organisations across the globe. A distinguished expert in the field, René Jacobs’ previous opera recordings have seen huge sales.

Here you can enjoy one of the few full studio recordings made of such a popular opera in recent history. This recording represents the peak of René Jacobs’s Mozartian enterprise: after showing us an alternative way of looking at the Da Ponte trilogy and taking a profoundly innovative approach to the two great opera serie (Idomeneo and La clemenza di Tito), he has now set out to harmonise and clarify the myriad viewpoints exposed in Die Zauberflöte, ranging far beyond its Masonic rituals and mixture of dramatic genres.

Includes a 314pp booklet with essay by René Jacobs and full libretto in French, German & English.
